African Fish Eagle
Aquila Pescatrice Africana
(Haliaeetus vocifer)

Takern from a boat in Lake Baringo (Kenya).
400mm, no crop.

ITA: Foto ripresa dalla barca durante una gita sul lago Baringo. Abbiamo anche comprato dei pesci da un pescatore e quando vedevamo un'aquila posata sugli alberi della riva del lago li lanciavamo e l'aquila subito si tuffava per recuperarli.

La composizione non del tutto corretta ma la foto no crop e non ho possibilit di reinquadrarla...

Credo che 'sta foto l'abbia fatta la Monica... ma non ne sono sicuro...

Hi Andrea,

A great catch for both of you,it must have been a delight only to see this action from that close,the sharpness and exposure are well handled,thanks for your visits to my pictures and I must say that we dont travel to venice,at the moment will one more trip augusta-napels and then a trip from augusta to Oristano.

Best regards,

In ogni caso anche se l'ha fatta Monica rimane una bellissima foto e anche l'inquadratura non male.

Ciao e grazie, Emanuele

Hi Andrea,
One to be proud of. An excellent capture taken at just the right moment. Really outstanding exposure and color. Detail is amazing. Fabulously done.


Hi Andrea,
Great capture for you as wellas the eagle.
Wonderful feather details due to excellent lighting.
Love the drops of water hanging in mid air behind the fish.
Excellent work again.
Thanks for sharing.
Best regards,

Hi Andrea
Beautiful in flight capture.Very sharp image with excellent details from the plumage.Colors are very nice .I like the water drop behind the fish.
TFS Michel

Hi Andrea,
Awesome action capture..You did good! :)
If you had the resolution, I might've gone ahead & cropped a bit off the backside and squared it up..This works too ;)
Very well done!

Amazing sharpness, especially on th eeagles face, tallons and the fish.
Slightly OE on the tail, but nevertheless a brilliant in-flight shot.


see..non sei sicuro....dai hai paura che ti tolga il mestiere :-)

bonjour andra
magnifique prsentation de cet aigle. couleurs parfaite et bonne prise avec sa proie

Hi Andrea,
WOW!!! Brilliant capture of this Eagle. Very detailed, wonderful colors and well blurred background, great composition.

Hi Andrea,
Wow you were close to this one and the outfit performed well.
Everything is there including the water droplets from the fish. All sharp and good colour. Only little niggle is that the bird has passed you.

VERY good action shot Andrea! Sharp, colourful with a good BG. Great work, Regards, Kiran

wauw Andrea,

fantastic action shot! great exposure, timing! very well done!

ke tu non possa ricomporre l'inquadratura frutto SOLO della tua gelosia nei confronti della Monica che ha fatto una foto bellissima!


Both you and the eagle got a very good capture. Congratulations Andrea.
